New York Skyline

Project Description

What was your inspiration? The bride & groom became engaged in New York. She found this cake design in a magazine (can't remember who the original designer was but her cake looked a lot better than mine!). The bride asked me duplicate it. The cake is covered in buttercream with fondant ribbons around the top three tiers. On the bottom tier, I used gumpaste to cut out "buildings" and hand painted them to look like the buildings in New York. I also made the topper the same way. Thanks for looking! Lisa

Q&A with lisascakes

chocolate art asked:
Was the cake slightly blue and the fondant ribbons white? IT is hard for me to see it on my computer? or maybe the eyes LOL
lisascakes answered:
No - it is all white - the reception hall wouldn't turn their darn lights on when I was delivering except for a spot light for me to see...grr!!!...so my pictures didn't turn out well.
EllingtonSweets asked:
Lisa, I just love, love, love your cakes.
lisascakes answered:
Why thank you!!!
Chef Sam asked:
I see that it was all white from one of the previous comments, but did you spray it with a tinge of blue at all? Shame, I know the feeling of bad lighting. It's so aggravating. But this cake is beautiful whether it's totally white, or tinted blue. Xxx
lisascakes answered:
Thanks ! But no, there was no blue...just a pitch black reception hall! lol
